In 1991, he first worked with U2 remixing “Even Better Than the Real Thing” and “Mysterious Ways” from their Achtung Baby album. It was the start of a long partnership with that band which included his spot as DJ on their historic ZOO TV tour and the remixed versions of the band’s “Beautiful Day,” a number one hit for U2 on the U.S. and U.K. dance charts. Over the years, he’s remixed tracks for everyone from Madonna to Elvis Presley to Justin Timberlake to Muse to Snoop Dog. He’s the first electronic artist ever to be in the Guinness Book of World Records–for being the biggest DJ in the world. He’s the only DJ to have a display case in the Hard Rock Cafe’s Rock & Roll Museum. He has worked on the music for major Hollywood films including Swordfish, Collateral, Planet Of The Apes & Matrix Reloaded”.
